Before little F arrived I was a little anxious, (like most parents of one child!) of how on earth we could possibly split our time between two. It has been hard, there are times, when little D is happily chatting away to her Happyland figures and Little F is snoozing in his swing chair and I think yes! nailed it! and then 30 seconds later there can be a poo explosion, tantruming toddler, someone knocking at the door, the dogs going bananas and i’m thinking ahhhhh I cannot do this! Luckily these moments only happen now and then and I keep telling myself as they both get a little older it will get easier slowly but surely…
Now that little D has started a couple of hours of pre school I have really started to appreciate a little one on one time with the little man. When D was a baby she had so much of my attention, constant cuddles and chats and I often feel like little D now takes up so much of my attention baby F doesn’t get as much. So once a week when D is a pre school we head off to Baby Sensory and have some good quality one on one time.
This week little F has just figured out how to hold toys and look at them. Mr H always jokes about how useless babies are for such a long time so actually being able to hold and look at things is a big deal. This week he played with a maraca, (note he eventually bopped himself on the head!)
He’s had a tough week with he reflux getting worse, giving him and us no sleep, so we’ve had a milk change and so far things are looking up! He slept a really long time last night, but turned out to be the one night Little D was up twice being a crazy twoligan, having removed her pyjama onesie and asking me to put it back on….TWICE….ahhhh!
